Restoring Salmon Creek Watershed
StreamTeam is our volunteer-driven stream restoration program. More than 1,000 team members donate over 3,500 hours of their time each year to save salmon. Our StreamTeam members include utility employees, Stream Stewards, AmeriCorps members, scout groups, college students, youth groups and many other dedicated individuals.

Get to Know AmeriCorps Volunteers!
Since 1997, AmeriCorps volunteers have been a critical part of StreamTeam’s restoration work in the Salmon Creek and East Fork Lewis River watersheds. Well over a hundred young adults from Clark County and the nation abroad have contributed thousands of hours to improving our local habitat. Their “Get Things Done” attitudes continue to leave a lasting positive impact on the environment and our community. Please join StreamTeam in thanking all past and present AmeriCorps volunteers!
Volunteers work year-round to prepare seedlings, and pot and plant native trees.
The trees we plant have an 85 percent survival rate thanks to the StreamTeam’s hard work to weed and water them for up to five years after planting.
This grant-funded program focuses on removing aggressive, non-native plants like knotweed, invasive blackberry and canarygrass.
